Over the course of Euro 2016 we supplied data to a whole variety of projects; from live score apps to marketing companies to professional gamblers. The tournament saw moments of brilliance as well as upsets that we would rather weren’t mentioned – the Fastest Live Scores API meant that everyone was kept up to date with all of the action. Below are just a few examples of how our data was used over the course of the tournament.
Toyota’s marketing agency integrated our API feed so that the digital advert displayed updates for live Euro 2016 matches. Here are some examples of how the adverts appeared in-play:
The results showed that adverts displaying live content had a much higher click through rate than the static adverts. The desired result was achieved from all parties.
Goal Mouth is a fantastic new predictions app. Users compete with their friends to make score predictions and earn points for correct guesses. The Fastest Live Scores API meant that users could check how their predictions were going over the course of the games as well as where they stood in the league compared to their friends.
We will be working with Goal Mouth over the course of the Premier League so make sure you download it and check it out.
StubHub is an online ticket re-sale service. During Euro 2016 they allowed fans to buy and sell tickets for the games they wished. StubHub made use of the CrowdScores API to maintain their fixture data. This allowed them to sell tickets for England v Iceland (rather than Runner-up Group B v Runner-up Group F) and to ensure that no tickets were bought or sold after kickoff.
